Controversial singer, Oluwabimpe Susan Harvey widely known as Goldie who has come under media attack since her exit from this year's Big Brother Africa Stargame, reality show is currently working on a project to rejuvenate her almost sleeping career in music called the Africa Invasion Album.

The 12-track album, Showtime gathered,will feature top artistes from 12 different countries across Africa. This development, is coming a week after the songstress travelled to Los Angeles where she celebrated her birthday and later went on a shopping spree with her friends there. She also got a car gift for her birthday.

Meanwhile, our source said, the pop diva is presently putting finishing touches to a compilation of tracks that will include 3 hit singles from the Africa Invasion Album tagged "the Naughty Singles."

"The Naughty Singles" include performances with two Channel O award nominees; Uganda's Navio in a track titled "Miliki", Tanzania's Hip-hop sensation, A.Y in Skibobo and J Martins from Nigeria in a track titled "Give it to me"

The UN Ambassador, Showtime further learnt will embark on a trip to South Africa later this month to shoot videos for the 3 singles, after which she will be making campaign tours with each artiste in their various home lands.

The tours, our sources said are significant to Goldie as she seeks to seize the opportunity not only to promote her work with her fellow African artistes but also, to physically identify with her numerous fans shattered across the continent.

In a matter of weeks, Goldie's singles which will be distributed all over the continent will help to put to rest her alleged sizzling romance with her Kenyan counterpart, Prezzo. The planned released is to reciprocate the love that has been shown to her all over Africa by her fans.

According to an online poll done after the Big Brother show, Goldie was named the most popular female celebrity in Nigeria and Africa. All these has pushed her do go into the studio to reward her increasing number of fans.

Responding online to questions about the recent round trips she has been making to various countries, the pop diva said, "Most of the trips are for work. I am collaborating with a lot of artistes in my upcoming album.

I have been trying to keep most of it on the hush, but since you asked, I can tell you that a lot of major acts from Nigeria and Around Africa will be on it. it will be a new me, what I can say is wait for it.
